Man is the only creature endowed with the power of laughter;
is he not the only one that deserves to be laughed at?

Several years ago, at an STC awards banquet, a regular restaurant patron approached me to ask what was going on. When I told him about the STC and the awards he replied "Oh, boring people doing boring jobs!" and left. While some of our day-today work may be boring for some people, I resent being referred to as a boring person. Not everything related to technical documentation is boring and staid. I submit the following to help dispel that myth. --Brian

Tool Humor

Ever wonder about your favorite word processor's ability to annoy you. Here's a glimpse at the hidden dialog box available from the Tools | Options menu. It is not recommended that you change any of these settings...
